TREC is a three-phase event consisting of orienteering on horseback,
following a route on a map at pre-determined speeds, a control of
paces test, and a cross-country obstacle course that involves negotiating
hazards that a rider might encounter whilst out hacking in the countryside.
TREC reflects the British Horse Society objectives in encouraging
riders to improve their skills and to make riding in the countryside
safer and more enjoyable.
